Day #6 hope*writers Fall Writing Challenge: TRANSFORM

Day 6 hope*writers Fall Writing Challenge: TRANSFORM ___________________________

Not sure of your routine in reading Instagram posts/captions, but if you don’t normally swipe first then read — do that now. 

Okay, so I was originally going to briefly discuss the transformation that takes place when you add a dollop of whipped cream to an ordinary bonus half cup of Saturday morning coffee. 

It was delicious and took on a celebratory feeling just with a tiny phsssht from the can!

Then I was going to wax eloquently on how easily we can now transform anything we publish here on IG with the simple press of a filter button (refer back to photos of me and Poppy) ☺

While that is fascinating for about a millisecond, then realized this exercise was about how writing itself has transformed me. šŸ¤¦šŸ»‍♀️
Ah! That’s sometimes easy and sometimes tough to nail down. 

Writing in its purest sense gives me a voice. I’m an introvert, and I have a subtle but wicked sense of humor. I have to warm up to you, but my sass factor is on full tilt once we know each other. 

Interestingly enough, I can communicate that sassiness via my writing far more easily than in person on the regular.

I actually had a secret blog at one time just for those sassy thoughts I couldn’t post anywhere else! 

Anyway, before I get off track entirely— I am convinced writing transforms me into a deeper thinker. 

When I am writing, I capture those otherwise fleeting thoughts that often run down the drain with my shower water. 

When I am writing, I clearly process negative thoughts that cripple me and hold me captive. 

Writing brings FREEDOM. 

Writing unleashes my creativity. 

Writing challenges me to move beyond my self-imposed restraints and encourages me to think, feel, and express myself bravely. 

Writing allows me to say things in a far more prolific fashion than my brain may be able to come up with in person. 

Stuttering and stumbling over words is far less common when I write. šŸ˜‰

Writing is a way for me to transform into something bigger than my 5’ (on a fluffy hair day) self. 

Writing is also an amazing opportunity to leave something tangible behind once I no longer have breath in my lungs. 

Bearing that in mind though, writing prompts me to choose my words carefully as I am consciously aware they are on record forever. 


The catalyst to transform in ways few other practices allow. 

I am a writer. 

I am transforming. 

I am forever better for it. 

How about you?
